  • Doing anything successful, doing anything important is going to take discipline.

  • There's always gonna be a reason to wait, there's always gonna be a busy schedule.

  • There's always gonna be something unexpected that happens.

  • It's always going to be that way.

  • You have to work through it.

  • You have to prioritize your study and make it more important than everything else going on in your life, but a lot of you don't want it enough.

  • It's easy to fall into loving the idea of something and it's hard to fall into the habits of action to actually achieve the grades you're aiming for.

  • It's not about after the vacation or after the film or after the YouTube video, it's about right now.

  • People who succeed stick to the plan regardless.

  • When you tell yourself you're going to study 4 hours tonight for your exam next week, you need to do it.

  • You are all curious about what the secret is, why certain people succeed when you don't succeed.

  • Well, I'm gonna tell you why.

  • Successful people while you're whining and crying about how things are hard and why things aren't fair, guess what they're doing?

  • They're doing the studying.

  • You have to commit to becoming better.

  • You have to commit to being a person of action.

  • You have to commit to being someone who doesn't just talk but follows through.

  • Become someone who does instead of someone who just talks.

  • But you have a choice, you've suffered enough already, you deserve to do well.

  • You already know what failure feels like, so now it's time to know what success feels like.

  • So I'm not gonna lie to you, I was scared of going to university.

  • I did so poorly at school, I was rejected by university after university but one let me in.

  • And I told my professor what happens if I put in all these years and I don't get it.

  • He said well what if you put in all these years and you get it.

  • And I got it and it changed my life.

  • I went from being at the bottom of the class at school to being in the top 5% at university.

  • I graduated with a 4.0 GPA and doors opened for me that I didn't even know were there.

  • I smashed one exam then another then another and it fed the hunger inside me.

  • You carry on like that and you'll climb to the top of your class within a couple of months.

  • Your friends will ask you if you've started studying for the exam yet and you'll smile because you know you're so organized and motivated, you started studying two months ago.

  • While they're studying overnight in the library panicking the night before the exam, you'll be relaxing getting ready for bed, knowing you've earned that rest.

  • You're ready for the exam tomorrow, you've been ready for weeks because you've got your hunger back.

  • You're not the same person you were last year.

  • You're not that little kid that leaves their studying for the last minute.

  • You look nothing like that, you've grown, you've evolved, you're twice the person that you were back then.

  • You knew what you were doing wrong and you made the adjustments that were needed to take you to the next level.

  • You have an incredible journey ahead of you and I wish you all the luck in the world.

  • if you continue doing the same tomorrow that you did today, I know exactly what grades you'll get this year.

  • Just look at last year because if there's no improvement there in your studying then you'll just continue getting the same grades.

  • So if I had a chat with you tonight, one-on-one, just you and me.

  • My personal advice to you would be reach down inside of you and come up with more of those remarkable human gifts that you have within you.

  • They're there waiting to be utilized and then change anything in your life that you want to change.

  • And I challenge you to do that because I know you have the ability to change.

  • If you don't like how it is for you, change it!

  • If you don't like your grades, study more.

  • If you don't like your body, go to the gym.

  • If you don't like your friends, get new friends.

  • You don't have to be the same after this video.

  • And if you are, it's completely your choice.

  • Take full responsibility, don't complain, be prepared, be kind and go out there and study.

Doing anything successful, doing anything important is going to take discipline.
